Join us at Carisbrooke Castle Museum for the last of this season's special 'Insight' talks, designed to give local people an opportunity to find out more about the museum and its collection.

The topic will be 'An Island Legacy', an illustrated talk by Ken Hicks in which he will compare 19th century Brannon engravings of Island scenes with modern-day photographs of the same places, including some rarely seem images. There will be the opportunity to view original engravings from the museum's collection.

Tickets are £8 to include refreshments and all proceeds help support the museum Trust - spaces limited so call 01983 523112 or email [email protected] to book.
